    Uh, according to Makita, the only difference between the drills is that the black/whites can use both batteries but only available with the 1.5ah batteries. The blue/black ones only use the 3.0ah batteries. There isn’t a lower standard held for one over the other. The black/whites have belt clips, good chargers, etc. I don’t like the black/white look but it should be a good tool. As far as I can tell, the disadvantage of the black/whites is that their 1.5ah batteries aren’t good with many of the 3.0ah accessory tools available in the blue/black. The 1.5ah batteries don’t have the juice to cut it with a cordless saw for example. If you buy the black/white, you can’t accessorize your cordless setup with bare tools.
